Your First Week

Take the time to get oriented to your Department and Team after you get started. You should receive communication from your hiring manager, but here is some information that is helpful to know as you settle into your first week. 

Computer Training

You may need to attend training on various software used at Emory Healthcare, including EPIC – our electronic health records system.

Employee Identification Badge

To ensure the safety and security of staff and patients, you are required to wear an official Emory Healthcare photo ID badge during work hours. Your ID badge may be obtained at your tagged campus hospital. You will receive additional information from your hiring manager if you work in an offsite location.

Parking and MARTA

Parking is available throughout Emory Healthcare, and your hiring manager can direct you to the nearest parking office for parking access. Depending on the location of your assigned parking facility, parking may be at no cost to you or available at a subsidized rate. Emory also provides a subsidized MARTA pass, if public transportation is a convenient option.
